A strange little book not unenjoyable just a bit bizarre We follow along with detective Ulf Varg and his team at the Department Of Sensitive Crimes in Sweden as they try to solve some curious cases including a stabbing in the back of the knee and the disappearance of an imaginary boyfriend Witty and full of eccentric characters I found myself chuckling a couple of times I was amused by the uirkiness of both the characters and the storyline I'm still sitting here shaking my head at what I just read but at the same time it was oddly appealing and I would definitely read from this author35 stars rounded up to 4My thanks to NetGalley and Hachette Australia for an ARC in exchange for an honest review

Alexander McCall Smith ´ 1 DOWNLOAD

Of course Ulf is a Swedish detective and Swedish detectives by convention lead lives beset with problems of one sort or another For a start there is his name Ulf means “wolf” in modern Swedish and Varg derives from the Old Norse word for “wolf” But his character is far from vulpine Ulf is a sympathetic well educated and likeable man with a knowledge of and interest in Scandinavian and modern art He has a dog named Marten the only dog in Sweden capable of lip reading but only in Swedish Martin becomes depressed and needs treatment Dogs in Sweden are apparently particularly prone to Seasonal Affective Dis. A light and gentle read with McCall Smith's signature warmth and homespun philosophy None of the 'sensitive' crimes passed on to the Department are very serious but are thoughtfully handled and resolved by Detective Varg who is a master of understanding human natureI'm a big fan of the author's No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and 44 Scotland Street but this one doesn't have uite the same appeal to me being somewhat slower and reflective However McCall Smith's books have a habit of creeping up on you and perhaps given time and some interesting crimes this has the potential to become a favourite too With thanks to Netgalley and Hachette for a digital ARC to read


The Department of Sensitive CrimesOrder SAD But this is summer so there must be something else going onUlf has a number of colleagues into whose lives we gain insight There is Anna married to an anaesthetist but very fond of Ulf Erik whose sole interest is fishing Carl whose father is a famous Lutheran theologian who has written a book on Danish philosopher Kierkegaard then there is Blomuist from the uniformed branch who goes on and on about his health problems but seems to have extraordinary luck in investigations There is also Ulf's psychotherapist Dr Svensson whose observations on Ulf's life and many other topics enlightensor possibly confus. Nobody writes like Alexander McCall Smith He has a formula and this time he's transposed it to Scandinavia where if fiction coming out in the past 20 years or so is to believed corruption and mayhem fester around every corner But with his talent for creating casts of lovable characters Smith traipses out here in the creation of a department that will handle those uirky cases that need attention but serious minded police won't waste time on after all they're too busy chasing knife wielding revengeful maniacs These are the cases that result in ethical dilemmas not corpses and each situation is a sort of morality play and a glimpse into the human condition Can't wait for the next installment
